Actually couldn't finish this book. Not what I expected. Was simply written as a list of movies and a list of neurological issues. I didn't really need to know which movies explore whichever type of possible diagnosis. I guess I was expecting more emphasis on the portrayal and accuracy of the issues and not just what seemed like a quick glance.
